When Charitybuzz, one of the leading charity auction sites, approached us to sell some of our designs through their new online store, theGOODS, we immediately jumped at the opportunity to support one of our favorite non-for-profit organizations, Women In Need.
Since 1983, WIN has provided New York city’s homeless women and their families with safe, clean housing, and the support and skills needed to become self-reliant. Suzanne Pincus, one of WIN’s founders, was a dear family friend and the wife of our godfather, Uncle Lionel, so we grew up hearing about this fabulous organization since its inception.
Now we have a way of helping a great cause – not only will 20% of sales of our designs on Charitybuzz go to WIN, but we’ll also be sprucing up six transitional shelters in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx. We visited the Jennie A. Clarke residence on Wednesday (run by the amazing Mary Beth Gonzalez) and can’t wait to share with you how our flowers will brighten the space.
More to come but in the meantime, do good and shop well on Charitybuzz!
